. republican senator lindsey graham has revealed he says the death toll in u.s. drone war overseas. at a speech in south carolina wednesday night, he said -- his comments mark the first time a u.s. official has offered a figure for those killed in nearly a decade of u.s. drone strikes abroad. the 4700 figure matches the high end of an estimate by the bureau of investigative journalism, which extensively has covered the strikes. the news comes as the obama administration continues to stonewall members of congress on fully releasing the justice department memos explaining the legal rationale for targeted killings overseas. the white house agreed to a least partially disclose the memos earlier this month after a senate uproar amid the conformation hearings for cia nominee john brennan. but the new york times reports the administration has adopted a strategy of continuing to deny senators full access while simultaneously negotiating with republicans to reveal more information on the deadly u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. the strategy appears focused on ensuring the white house has enough votes f

for readiness? >> we could try, but the only means of doing that was reprogramming, using very limited techniques. for every dollar that you add, you have to cut somewhere else. especially in an environment like this one, with sequestration cuts in investment accounts, there are not a lot of good sources. you have to get a member of congress to agree to this, at least all the committees. so, it cannot be anything contentious. it is not realistic to move multiple billions of legal limits on transfer authority. could some of this change? yes. congress can change the laws in ways that make this easier. we are doing worst-case planning right now, that is a fair statement. but if the cr stays in effect for the whole year, we will see serious attacks. >> if i can follow up and add, if we do follow these civilian employees, they are the ones that maintain our equipment in a lot of our depots. they have a lot of ranges on posts. if furloughed, they will love be -- they will not be there for that training environment. it is the second and third quarter. it is not the training dollars that can b

"the factor" begins right now. >> bill: hi. i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. what is america's biggest problem, part 2. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. as we told you last night, america's changing rapidly and many of those changes are harmful to the well-being of the nation. the fault lies with us because we the people elect politicians who are massively screwing up the country. last night, 50 years ago, the usa was a far different place. our primary values were self-rearer liians, hard work and honesty. that's what we respected. no longer. big problem is the court system. two-week ago, the new jersey supreme court ruled 5-0 that a woman who ingested crack cocaine two days prior to giving birth did not abuse or neglect the baby s

on the story for us. >> reporter: stoic, oscar pistorius back in court today, as prosecutors argued he was too much a flight risk to grant bail, showing blueprints and explaining what happened the night he shot his girlfriend, model reeva steenkamp. pistorius had said they were both sleeping when he woke, heard a noise, grabbed his gun from under the bed and rushed into the bathroom. but prosecutors say pistorius would have had to cross the bed to get to the bathroom and should have noticed steenkamp was not in it. and they say this is key -- they intend to use ballistics to show he was already wearing his prosthetic legs when firing his gun -- hoping to disprove his testimony that he woke in the middle of the night and rushed to confront an intruder without taking the time to put on his prosthetics. >> here, the prosecution has a very critical piece of evidence that could determine whether his story was accurate or not. >> reporter: but in a series of missteps, prosecutors revealed the witness who claimed to hear yelling was up to six football fields away, and backtracked from claims they fou

complex issue, because of the definition of taxes, penalties and related issues. >> yeah, i think using the term subsidy by its nature, it makes people nervous. subsidy seems have sort of a connotation use in recent years of something untoward. i guess the way i would look at it, i hear your question as a bit of a philosophical question, and less of a nuts and bolts question. i think philosophically, there is fairly broad agreement that you subsidize things that have a social benefit. that they have a benefit that goes beyond the individual and it's not decision reflected in the marketplace. and so i think that you have to look at it that way, if something is not being valued that would make, you know, society better, then you have to come up with some way of evaluating it. whether tax is one way of doing that. i think as far as a market mechanism, it is the way we have tended to look at subsidy as sort of the lubricant to allow these new technologies to find their footing in the marketplace. they do, without a doubt. we have our technology curve and i can show you the map of all of our

bradley is joining us this morning from washington, with more on this winter storm. good morning, tahman. >> reporter: good morning, diana. good morning, rob. some 30,000 people are in the path of this monster. much more severe weather is expected today in the nation's heartland. a brutal winter blast that started in california, is marching through the midwest. today, millions will experience the full brunt of the storm when it dumps more snow and ice. and it might even spawn tornadoes. in parts of california, everyone is pitching in to clear snow. >> trying to dig out my dad so he can go to work later on today. >> i'm really liking this now that they're getting a little older. they can handle it for me. so, i don't have to come out here and have a heart attack. >> reporter: across several states, freezing rain and sleet made driving conditions treacherous. some drivers spliped or spun out of control. >> i was trying to go down the street from my house. and i started to go sideways down the hill. >> reporter: some were stranded for hours after icy highways were shut down. >> going to se

in the u.s. senate was 27-6. in the house, it was 136-35. four out of five republican members in both houses for civil rights. for the voting rights to follow, the republican vote in the senate was 30-2. overwhelming in all cases. i'm watching this debate over the voting rights act and i'm struck with the reality that the reason for today is the republican party. not the party of the 1960s. but the one that's backed voter suppression efforts in dozens of states and keeps on doing. every time a state passes another bill making it harder to vote, cutting down on voter days, exz e exz tending voter id requirements, you have to wonder are they doing precisely what the voter rights act was designed to stop? >> the republican party can be proud in certain regards. certainly the backing of certain men like edward durks. the question today for this young century is whether the republican party will be as proud in the future for the positions it's taking now. that's "hardball" for now. "politics nation" with al sharpton starts right now. >> thanks, chris. and thanks to you for tuning in i'm li

. here is mccain's remark on president obama. listen to this. >> so far the group of us that has been working on it have not had any problem from the white house. and we believe that there is a good, strong possibility that we come up with a plan and a proposal that most americans would support. >> well, most americans aren't most republicans. and this is going to be the problem. a path to citizenship is viewed by the republican and the right wing who get in and mix all this stuff up, the caucus that boehner of course can't control and mitch mcconnell for that matter, they're against a path to citizenship. so how is this going to play out? >> i think that's why one of the reasons why the president's proposal was actually finally put on paper and leaked, actually put a stake in the ground. now, if we don't have a path to citizenship, let's have an honest conversation with americans, basically saying by not having a path to citizenship, we're creating 11 million folks that are living in this country that basically all of the sudden become stateless. we don't want that. we don't want two

security to become an issue as it relates to budget cuts. but imagine they let us go over this cliff and then the re3ubly cans come back and introduce a bill for those funds to be reinstated. now whapsz? democrats end up, if they're against it, like they're soft on defense. >> so they want to let it go down and then come back with the defense when, in fact, they let it go down with the sequester. which is why they were put there in the first place. >> and something else the president said. he said, look, the federal government, it's not just about bureaucrats and federal employees. this is about the fact that the united states government buys everything from toilet paper to saran wrap. i mean, they buy a lot of things. and that means that the small businessmen and women will not be able to sell their products to the united states government. and we say meat inspectors. okay. so we think inspector here, inspector there. but hold on. you can't put meat on the shelves if they're not inspected. and then, what happens is there's a shortage. and what happened to all of us? the price of mea
say pistorius used a cricket back to break down the bathroom door. the bat and the cellphone were found splattered with blood. using a diagram projected at a large screen, the officers said pistorius aimed his gun at the toilet, pointing out that he had to turn and fire at an angle in order to hit the toilet. more prosecution evidence, a floor plan of the apartment, which the state says shows pistorius could not have crossed the bedroom towards the bathroom without realizing steenkamp was not in bed. defense attorneys pressed the police officer who admitted that steenkamp's body had no signs of an assault or signs of her defending herself. the officer also conceding he could find nothing inconsistent with pistorius's version of events. prosecutors say police found bullets in a safe in the home and they say that will lead to charges of possessing illegal ammunition, but later the investigator said they did not establish whose ammunition it was. prosecutors say there's no way the killing of steenkamp was self-defense. they cited two previous incidents of police encounters with pisto
